"The love you seek will come to you"

Transcendental Sonnet #1423:

The more we want the less we get
Desire is suffering
Happy are those who can forget
Desiring anything

The less we seek the more we find
That which the heart requires
The body through a quiet mind
Receives the heart's desires

The love you seek will come to you
Ask not and you will know
Forget and let your dreams come true
At last when you let go

For empty must the vessel be
To be filled to satiety

+Steven Curtis Lance

You teach wisely through the verses of your sonnet, Stevie; and I certainly appreciate the sentiments therein. Now, to learn how to live thusly. Thank you for this precious gift, my friend. Love and peace to you,

A true, emphasized sonnet, Poet Steven Curtis Lance, yearning and hollow. Yet, filled.

This is so amazing as i can relate to living my life with the love of God and if he sees it to bring a mate then i will gladly accept it and if not I know that the Lord loves me and he loves you too.
